Recess, every child's favorite part of school growing up.

Shiny School Bus

The Eagle Mountain Elementary in Fort Worth Texas I think has it right. Triple to normal Recess time for their students.

So here is how this works:

  • It's for kindergarten and first-grade students
  • They Get two 15-minute recess breaks every morning
  • Two 15-minute breaks every afternoon

Teachers say the focus of the students is better and the kids are doing a better job at paying attention. Seriously, isn't that every teachers dream? Would something like this work in Rockford?

So instead of loading up the kids on ADHD medicines, more recess? If that doesn't sound like an awesome plan. More Monkey Bars and swing sets and less prescription drugs.
